The eagerly anticipated Target Sprint Series Final 2017 is finally upon us as the best of the best from around the country come together tomorrow to fight it out for the title of Target Sprint National Champion at YOSC (Yate Outdoor Sports Complex) in Bristol.
The event, which was introduced to the UK last year, is an exciting new way of getting involved in target shooting and has grown from strength to strength with over 70 Athletes from across the country competing in the final this time around.
Participants run 400 metres before shooting down five targets with an air rifle. They then run another 400 metres, shoot five more targets and then complete a final 400 metre run.
The event is great for those who love shooting but want to keep active, but equally good for those who love running but fancy mixing it up a little bit.
Events and Commercial Co-ordinator, Gorgs Geikie, said: “I'm excited that Target Sprint is being welcomed by so many people and returned bigger and better after the first National Series in 2016.
“After the International success of the GB Team in Suhl, it's exciting to see so many further talented athletes who could potentially shine on the international stage.”
British Shooting would like to thank our Target Sprint Series Partner, Air Arms for their continued support.

There will also be a GB Talent ID weekend 7th and 8th October. This for Juniors and Seniors and open to all.
It’s an opportunity for people to get a space on the GB Squad for the next 6 months.
